Tree Planting for Future Academic Growth

On Feb. 19, Georgia’s Arbor Day, the UGA Graduate School planted a Nuttall Oak by Terrell Hall (the home of the first Graduate School of UGA)  to mark the beginning of the next 100 years of graduate school education.

“Planting a tree is very symbolic to me.  It signifies how small actions can grow into beautiful and productive endeavors,” Dean Maureen Grasso said about the planting.

From seven students in 1910 to over 7,100 today, the Graduate School has indeed grown in 100 years; this tree will witness the future growth the Graduate School strives for.
